An Aberdeenshire designer who worked on a hugely successful play has been recognised in the Broadway equivalent of the Oscars.
Finn Ross, of Aboyne, has been nominated for an Antoinette Perry Award for Excellence in Theatre – or a Tony – for his work on a production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
The honours recognise achievements in live Broadway theatre in Manhattan, New York City.
Mr Finn has been jointly nominated for best scenic design of a play along with colleague, St Andrews-born Bunny Christie.
Mr Finn said: “I’m stunned, thrilled, amazed and honoured to be nominated. I am so happy America has taken so warmly to our show and amazed at the journey from a small studio to Broadway has gone this far. And to be nominated with another Scot is brilliant.”
The video designer is a former pupil of Aboyne Academy and produces work for all forms of live performance, with a special interest in opera, music and theatre.
The National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time was hugely successful in the US and in London’s West End.
The show is in the running for seven Tony awards in total.
It will come to His Majesty’s Theatre, in Aberdeen, in September as part of a UK-wide tour.
Producer of the play, Chris Harper, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Scottish design duo, Bunny Christie and Finn Ross, were yesterday nominated for a Tony Award for best scenic design for Curious Incident.
“Bunny and Finn’s designs are simply breathtaking and bring to life Mark Haddon’s story beautifully with a deceptively simple set from Bunny and stunning video projection from Finn.”
The awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, June 7.
